Furnace Maintenance

Making sure your furnace is working properly is key to keeping energy costs down. Here are some things you should do every fall to make sure your furnace is running as efficiently and as safely as possible:

  • Check vents to make sure they are clear. Blockages will cause the furnace to run inefficiently.
  • Make sure the thermostat is working properly.
  • Change the air filter at the start of the heating season, and monthly thereafter.
  • Check for gas leaks. If you notice the smell of gas, or any of the connections look worn or damaged, call a professional for repair before you start up the furnace.
  • If you have an electronic air cleaner, clean the air filter every other month.
  • Schedule an annual tune-up.

Need To Repair or Replace Your Furnace?

Knowing whether to repair or replace your furnace is not always an easy question to answer. Consider the following factors to help make your decision easier:

  • Safety first: If it is a safety hazard to continue using the furnace, replace it.
  • Age: The average lifespan of a furnace is 15 to 20 years. How close to the end of the life cycle is your furnace?
  • Cost: Get a quote for the cost of the repair and a quote for the cost of replacement, including installation charges to make an accurate comparison.
  • Efficiency: Are your energy bills creeping up every year in spite of annual furnace repair and service?

If your furnace is 15 years old or beyond and the cost of the repair would cover a significant part of the cost of a new system, consider replacement. Factor in the energy savings when determining the cost of a new system as upfront expenses may be recouped over time.
